Cry Baby


OK, I have had it!
For over a week I have had trouble with my blog, AND I can't post on every one's blog! I go to post a comment and it leaves the post and goes to sign in my account which by the way.. no matter how many times I sign in or change my password, I CAN'T sign in! I have lost track of some blogs I have followed forever. I thought this would pass but, not so at this point. I also tried to post by using my ID, nope. I know some of you talked about the same problems a few weeks ago.
Now for my second issue. Remember these?



Obviously something went wrong with my drying process. 

OK, I know you are laughing. 

If you have any advice, I'll try it. I am going now to find my paci.
Oh yea, Happy Monday. 
Linking this lovely before and after to

I am so sorry you are having problems, but you are not alone. I have heard many people just his week. Go to the help thread Susan left. When I was having other problems, I remember them talking about cleaning out your cookies. People were saying it worked, but was only a temporary fix. don't worry about getting back to me I know you can't :( I know that a lot of blogs you can post anonymous and then leave your name.....Now the flowers, I have no idea where you went wrong!

Beverly, first of all about blogging: UNCHECK where it says "stay signed in", that WORKED for me. However, NOW I can't post pictures!!!!! AAUUGGHH! It is so darn frustrating! About the hydrangeas: you can't dry them til later in the season, when they are a little older. Say in August or Sept. Atleast that is how it is for me, and then I ahve no trouble drying them. Also, do you put them in a dark place, Like the garage. XO, Pinky

Wow guys.. thanks so much!!! Pinky I had all kinds of trouble getting these pics up for this blog. I did clear my history and could post one comment.. I am scared to uncheck sign out b/c it is not accepting my passwords but it may come to it. Thanks for the hydrangea advice. I didn't have them a dark place. I will diffently try it again.

I hope the above comments help your Blogger problems. I didn't laugh at your hydrangeas, I thought "Awww." Good luck next time.

Mystica said...

I had the same thing for comments on blogs. About the hydrangeas I just read to remove leaves and put the stems into a vase with water and the water gets all sucked up into the flowers and when the wateris over the flowers remain as dry hydrangeas for over 2 years. Cant remember the name of the blog though.

Had the same problems with the blogs.
As for the hydrangeas, I now leave them on the bush - they last much longer! Then I just look at my painting - it never wilts there!

I've had the same problem with Blogger for a week now and it's been driving me crazy!

Beverly said...

I promise that I didn't laugh. I've been wanting to try drying some of mine, too.

Hi Pinky. I can't see the followers on my page, crazy! I've given up trying to fix it. About drying hydrangeas....I've read that they need to be mature flowers (not the ones you are picking now). Let them stay on the bush till later in the summer. They will be a green/blue by then, but still pretty. Linda

Okay I admit, I was laughing out loud!! Sorry to hear about the transistion back to work. That would be tough. And when will you have time for your blog?

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

Oh, I am a new follower.

Vicki V said...

I'll admit, I laughed when I saw your hydrangeas because they look just like mine! I did find this post later although I'll have to try it next year since my hydrangeas have gone by.

Hi Beverly!
I saw this cry baby post on your side bar and it caught my attention.
I had a whole week -- last week -- where I could not follow anyone new, and i could not comment on any posts! It was so daggone frustrating!!!!
Just got a kick out of yuor post.
I have truoble with hydrangeas too.
I know they drink from their petals so if you trun them upside down in a bucket with their heads touching the surface of the water, they will many times rehydrate and last a bit longer once cut!!!

Try it. it does work.
I can dry some of my hydrangeas in a vase --- the hardier ones, and some I have to cut and hang upside down in tha garage,

Good luck!
Sorry about the extra long post!
Since this was a post from June, I am thinking only you will see it and no one else will think I am a comment piggie!
